Backyard Make-Over

I'll be honest, what I really want to be doing right now is re-watching one of my favorite Korean dramedies. Instead, I decided that I should bust out a quick post. I've been waiting to post these photos for a while.  We had the play chips blown-in yesterday, so now I think it's time to reveal our backyard make-over.
Backyard, make-over

Another angle, plus my two views sitting on the patio:

We took out the hot-tub and koi pond.  Some would say that it is a shame. We were a little saddened at removing the pond, but couldn't stand having it around with toddlers. Now we have a kid-friendly area and a lovely space for reading. Best part?  The low maintenance.
One final thing: I think it's important to note that I planted all of the plants you can see there with the exception of the trees.  That was 40+ plants. Whew. It makes me tired just looking at it.

Have a Happy Day!



  1. Great job! I love what you've done with the space. It's much more practical for your phase of life and you did a great job with the landscaping.

  2. that's inspiring. we have a fair bit of bare dirt and too many ideas of what to do. what a lot of work but your results look good.
